It's All Okay

Just a mom blogging about life with an autistic child.

Location: Canada

I'm a stay at home mom with two boys. Patrick is my youngest and has ASD.

Not his, mine.

I don't know why I'm anxious about the start of a new school year. When I ask him if he's ready to go back to school he replies with a resounding "Yeah" and when I ask him how he feels he says "excited". So he's not overly anxious (that I can tell anyway).

Gr 1 was a fabulous year for us. So much growth. There's nothing to suggest that Gr 2 will be any different. I mean, I'm sure there will be bumps along the way but that's to be expected, right? And we'll deal with them just as we did last at a time.

I guess I'm hoping that by putting it down in print and getting it out here that my anxiety will fade a little bit. Well, that and I may send a tiny email to the principal to make sure everyone's ready for him next week.

Do you know where your children are?

I don't. Well, of course I know where they are. But I'm not looking at them.


They said "we're gonna go outside and play". Hmmm. Gotta think that one through.

"Ok, stick together."

Ha. Come on, do it with me. A nice big belly laugh. Ha!

Ok, so it's kind of a first for me.

Sometimes I wonder how we ever got to this point. This is pretty surreal. But awesome too.

Wonder how long I can stay away from the window?

We're back!

So, we did a bit of wandering. But nothing as extensive as we first planned. Not because of behaviour or resistance to change or anything else like that.

We just decided we loved "hangin' out" at the cottage so...that's what we did. Short visit with family and some touring around but then we decided to come home and spend some family time here whilst we still could.

3 weeks till school starts.

I'll post a couple of pics when I get organized. I have two camera cards full of photos that I havn't sorted nor printed. They span at least a year of picture taking. *sigh* Time she does fly by.
